Overview:

The Impossible Takes Longer: The 1,000 Wisest Things Ever Said by Nobel Prize Laureates : Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been the hallmark of genius, but Nobel laureates tend to be more than merely brilliant - their idealism, courage, and concern for humanity have also made them sources of inspiration and wisdom. Contrary to the notion that geniuses are absentminded eccentrics who lead solitary lives, many Nobel laureates have been social activists and political leaders, and some have been polymaths whose interests and talents were diverse, such as Philip Noel-Baker, winner of the 1959 Peace prize, who ran in three Olympic Games. The quotations - drawn from biographies, published articles, and speeches - are grouped by such themes as achievement, truth and falsehood, war and conflict, technology, and more.
